Legends HT with H n W. 2500 FUE

Recommended Posts

I am in the same boat as you legend. I am not balding but I have very weak temple points. I’m also asian and around your same age.

I made the mistake of going to a reputable surgeon who does Neograft on the side and it made my perfectly normal hair into a mess. After doing a lot of research, I am going with Dr. wong because he has done some amazing temple work. My first step was to fue out the bad grafts. Now I have to wait (due to the shutdown) a year to get my temple points (600 grafts).

My point  isIf you want more density, I would go back to H&W around 2022. DO NOT GO TO TURKEY or somewhere cheaper. Even if it seems small and simple, bc it can get worse.

Before you do that, I would recommend going to a stylist and ask if s/he can cut your hair to give it more volume and thickness. It will help a lot to get a trim.

i started using 82f and taking finasteride every other day to guarantee I can keep my hair until I’m 100.

I don't claim to know much about it, but if a Doctor tried to add more density by adding grafts, isn't there a danger of transecting the existing transplanted hairs.?

This looks like a really good result to me. It looks very natural. You might be growing your hair a bit too long for the type of style you are trying to get. Try trimming it just a bit and it's possible the overall look of it may be better.

Sup guys .. things are looking better ,, it’s not great n full as l like ,. But if I make an effort n hair styling products and hair spray it down .. i can achieve that same nice look everyone posts on here .. 

- overall I’m happy enough , I don’t think I’m going back for Another HT until I bald more .. it’s  not worth the time n cost at my age, unless I get a bald spot somewhere .. It’s good enough to where I don’t have to comb my hair to hide a receding hairline , I can just leave it natural n feel comfortable in my own skin .. 

- this is me after a shower with nothing in hair but water .. water makes the hair fuller for some reason , so I know I can comb my hAir this way with some mousse n hairspray it down if I want ..

Hey guys I go back n respond to some of ur guys comments later .. 

but for now , I reply to Tyrone ..there is no way u went to top tier clinic on ur first HT , when u say they used Neograft on u , that’s a red flag 🚩 right there .. that’s a machine / tool that  noobie doctors uses when they still learning how to do hair transplants .

I think it looks real good. If you ever want to fill it in even more it won’t take much at all and you can go back to H&W or go to someone like Dr. Gabel who is one of the few doctors who can fill it in without shaving your recipient area, but it would only be for you to make it perfect in your eyes I don’t think anybody else would notice and there’s nothing wrong with that. 

Be thankful during your early days that you got lucky and didn’t do the procedure not only with a terrible doctor but a terrible person like Baubac and you found this forum to help guide you to better doctors. Baubac messed me up and I am going to have to spend a ton of money to get it corrected.

Hey guys I need ur help .. I’m attaching the same pics I sent to the clinic .. to me , this is no way 2500 grafts , 5000 hairs.. what’s u guys think? I’m thinking 1800 -2000 max grafts .. the middle section is missing a lot of hair to me .. top two pics are the section that was transplanted . N I never cut the transplanted hair .. just let it grew .. so those are all the hairs ..

it actually looks pretty good , natural .. but the volume is not there .. it’s hard for my hair to stay up .. i feel like I need about 400- 500 more grafts ..

I give it a B overall ..

I personally agree with your assessment although your standards are obviously very high and you yourself probably know its not realistic for everyone to get a yield of 100%.  Also totally agree with your estimate that 1800-2000 grafts grew, which is common even among good surgeons and by no means terrible. But I get what you mean and why you want more. My result is very good overall but on one side towards the corner where there isn't as much density when the hair grows longer it is harder to make it stand up and it doesn't have the same volume.

I'd probably take it up nicely with the clinic and see if they have the ability to count yield, maybe if they'd be willing to offer a discount on a touchup or something. I'm thinking 600-700ish grafts for density that matches the areas behind it. I would still emphasise though that its a good result, its just a little less impressive to you probably because your hair was in a decent spot prior to surgery, but no matter the patient even for a NW2 its hard to get ideal density in a single pass unless you're lucky.

Looks good! Keep in mind growing hair that long is going to really amplify any weak points you may have. But if you can put your hair straight back and in harsh lights it looks good your golden. I am on a 12 month no haircut journey to see my own results so you have given me a little inspiration with your hair that long. 
your hair looks good to me. ✌️

Hey y’all , n thanks jean , yep I knew u would be the honest technical person .. sure it looks good .. but did 2500 grafts grew ? Heck no, 2000 max grew.. if I didn’t pay top dollar to a top 10 clinic I would be recommending them to everyone . If I went overseas and got these results for half the price I would be super happy .. 

but nope the standards were high from me n the office , considering my low norwood , n nice caliber hair . N they even promise me a gurantee of 90 percent growth . So for them to dismiss me n just say nah 2500 grafts grew , it just doesn’t seem that way becAuse u dyed ur hair brown . Nah I didn’t even dye my transplant hair, n I look in the mirror everyday , so just tell me I’m wrong . That’s not customer service .. so I Haven’t even replied back to them . 
- n no I wouldn’t go to diep either .. his skill level Is there. , artistry n surgery , but he’s too much in a rush , fut in the morning , then he goes to the next pAtient right after for the Fue extractions , that’s why his extractions seemed rush because he has to get back to the first Fut patient to finish up .. so but honestly he needs to hire a specialist tech that does extractions only , like HNW does .. then he can be more focused on what he does well .. N he should get a better office manager that’s more customer oriented .. 

well that’s my beef .. overall I’m pretty glad I went through with the ht, it actually works .. :) 

n so does finasteride . When. I just turned 38 , that’s when my hair started to recede an fall out n thin.. every time I shake my head a few hairs would fall out .. at that rate I felt like I be bald in 2 years .. it’s natural for ur hair to fall , but if they don’t grow back faster than they fall that’s called balding ! 
fin, has kept things stable n the same . No gains or losses it seems but when I shake my head not many hairs fall .. so there’s hope guys .. I was super stressed two years ago .. now I feel comfortable.. I should be okay for a few more years , still got a couple more life cycles left in those thinning native . hairs ..
